About

The AlgoAware study was procured by the European Commission to support its analysis of the opportunities and challenges emerging where algorithmic decisions have a significant bearing on citizens, where they produce societal or economic effects which need public attention.

The study is carried out by Optimity Advisors and follows a call from the European Parliament for a pilot project supporting algorithmic awareness building.

THE METHODOLOGY

The study will follow a policy design methodology resting on the analysis of scientific evidence as well as a robust stakeholder engagement. We aim to engage with a range of stakeholders across diverse sectors as we seek to map the areas of interest where algorithmic operations bear significant policy implications.

This website showcases a series of reports, blog posts, case studies, infographics and policy developments and as such provides a platform for information, and forum for informed debate on the opportunities and challenges that algorithmic decision-making can provide in commercial, cultural and civic society settings.
